Ratings for DC Universe Online

Rating Description
Presentation Cool comic book cutscenes and collectibles that fill in the back-story are let down by frequent bugs.
Graphics Beautiful city architecture combines well with the comic-style characters, although pop-in is everywhere.
Sound Some of the best and some of the worst voice acting in gaming.
Gameplay Fun, fast-paced combat and a cool PvP system, although quests never change and Alerts are a bore.
Lasting Appeal Level 30 has lots to do but little that's not combat-centric.
